About the Author

I first became interested in the history of Roman Britain as a child and loved reading the ‘Eagle of the Ninth’ trilogy of novels by Rosemary Sutcliff. When I was older I read and studied all that I could about the Roman period in Britain and especially the events of the 4th century CE. I’ve always had a passion for writing and when I retired I decided to write novels set in late 4th Century CE Roman Britain. ‘Divided Empire’ was my first published novel and was published in November 2015. 'Dark Betrayal' was the second novel in the 'Divided Empire' series and was published December 2016. The third novel in the series is under way.

I live in Burton upon Trent, England with my wife Lynne, son Mark and our two tortoise shell cats, Tansy & Zoe. I enjoy walking in our local countryside and also the Peak District, Derbyshire. I also enjoy photography, reading, writing, visiting museums and historic sites and building and supporting our local Football League team, Burton Albion.

I hope you enjoy my novels as much as I enjoy researching and writing them. I welcome feedback from readers and especially like reading reviews left by them. If you are able to leave a review ( it doesn't have to be long, even just saying that you liked the book will do) at Amazon, or Goodreads, or even both, then I'd be very grateful.
